Meet the snake hunters of Bangkok in this awesome mini-doc from Great Big Story. In this vid, we get to spend a day with some of Bangkok’s bravest men as they seek out the city’s most dangerous snakes!


The snake catchers have to be really fearless as they drag snakes out of their hiding places in people’s homes. Often, their lives are at risk, with one catcher saying that he was hospitalised for 2 months after receiving a nasty bite from a King Cobra.

All in all though, the catchers have the snakes best interests in mind, as they often release the snakes back into the wild, rather than exterminate them. A lot of the catchers actually really like the snakes as well and often feel a kinship with their slippery reptile friends. Each to their own!
